Mark Wahlberg's 'Divo' Demands Nearly Cost Christopher Plummer His Role

Mark Wahlberg

The new report comes after a different report from Tuesday, January 9, said that Wahlberg was paid significantly more than his costar Michelle Williams for the reshoots of their film about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III.

Wahlberg and his co-star Michelle Williams are both represented by the same agency, but his hardball tactics are in contrast to her approach.

Mark Wahlberg refused to approve Christopher Plummer as a replacement for Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World unless he was paid over a million dollars for the reshoot, USA TODAY has learned.

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", one source told USA Today.

Another source told USA Today that Wahlberg's lawyer "formally vetoed the Oscar victor [Plummer] in a letter to financiers until his demand for additional payment was met".

US East Coast Gripped by Brutal Cold After Blizzard
US meteorologists called the winter storm in the week a " bomb cyclone " for its rapid and rare drop in atmospheric pressure. Both Philadelphia and NY were shivering at 8 degrees, with wind chills of -11 in Philadelphia and -9 in NY .

Reps for Williams, Wahlberg, Scott, WME and the production company which funded the reshoot did not respond to requests for comment. Actors pay agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10 percent of their salaries to advocate for them, the newspaper said.

Scott himself seemed to be under the impression that the two stars were not being paid based on interviews he has given over the past four weeks, saying that he, Williams and Wahlberg all took no salary.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", Williams told USA Today. "They all came in for free". Christopher had to get paid.

As soon as the main characters were locked in, the movie signed Plummer to replace Spacey.

Williams, meanwhile, could be looking at her fifth Academy Award nod for her work in the film when the honorees are announced next week. It looks like the only thing it would take to get Marky Mark to take time out of his busy pants-dropping schedule is some good old-fashioned co-star leveraging. "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he wrote. Spacey was removed from the production after numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him came to life.
